LOCATION: Cotuit, MA
COMPLETION DATE: Fall 2021
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: This project highlights a new vinyl bulkhead installation over in Cotuit. The wall is over 180’ long and made up of ShoreGuard vinyl sheet-piling, and Chance helical tie back anchors. After the new wall was installed and all the fastening complete, the wall was backfilled with over 150 cubic yard of clean compatible fill material to re-nourish the heavily eroded embankment. All wall construction mobilization and installation had to be done by water, however, all of the new fill material was brought in from the upland side of this project and installed using a chute system. This was done to confirm there would be no further disturbance of the embankment.
